Birds have always been birds. The latest blow to the "#birds evolved from #dinosaurs" theory came from a study made on the #embryology of #ostriches.
Drs. Alan Feduccia and Julie Nowicki of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill studied a series of live ostrich #eggs and, once again, concluded that, there can not be an evolutionary link between birds and dinosaurs. EurekAlert, a scientific portal held by the American Association for the The Advancement of Science (AAAS), reports the following:
This is the case for #Panoplosaurus mirus, in which not only do the dental rows seem strongly inset (they are not) but lateral expansion of the nasopharyngeal sinuses (forming extreme loops; Witmer & Ridgely, 2008) causes the lateral margins of the skull to expand beyond the lateral extend of the mandible at the same part. This has led to a subjective impression that there was a distinctive, broad cheeky overhang. The main culprit is the presence of thin, vertically oriented bones in the “buccal cavity” of the #skull, in this species and in others. If there was no “cheek,” what is this thing doing in the skull? What is it attached to? And precisely, what is its relation to extra-oral tissues surrounding the jaw? Interestingly, these ossicles support a full buccal tissue that expands from the skull to the mandible. This homologue tissue exists in #mammals and a few (very few) #birds, namely parrots (which have a unique muscle, m.pseudomasseter), etc.
A #scientist attached a whale's tail to a four-legged #animal to make a "walking #whale ". This #fossil was considered the best proof of #evolution but has turned out to be a "mistake." Now this evidence for evolution has been overturned.
#Archaeopteryx has been claimed to have more in common with reptilian #dinosaurs than it does with modern #birds, thus being depicted in some drawings with a #reptilian face. These are some of its features, according to scientists: jaws with sharp teeth, three fingers with claws, a long bony tail, hyper-extensible second toes (“killing claw”), and feathers. We see that today's birds mostly lack teeth, but tooth-like serrations can be found in geese and other #bird species. However, we see that there are other ancient extinct birds that also had real teeth which were designed perfectly for their diet. Does that make them #reptiles? Regarding claws on wings, we can find one type of bird today, the Hoatzin (Stinkbird), in which the young chicks also have claws, being able to grasp on to branches before learning how to fly. The Jeholornis is another ancient bird that had claws on its #wings, and also a long boned tail. Does this make them reptiles? There are also many mammals which have long bony tails. Killing claws are used by many carnivorous predatory birds, but that doesn't make them reptilian either. Finally, putting aside the controversy of feather forgeries, the feathers on the Archaeopteryx seem to hint that it was a bird. Can you think of any reptiles today that have feathers? We can find Pangolins that are mammals with scale-like structures. We can find two mammals, such as Platypus and Echidna, that also lay eggs like reptiles. Are they strange, or simply just designed for their environment? Does this make them reptiles? With all these varying features, we must consider that perhaps these diverse animals are designed according to their environment. And we must re-question the theory that birds emerged from reptiles--perhaps it is the other way around, or simply just a figment of the imagination, sparked by early religious evolutionists with their Darwinian beliefs...
Since the early 1980s, several prominent scientists have charged that the two #Archaeopteryx #fossils with clearly visible #feathers are forgeries. Allegedly, thin layers of cement were spread on the mating surfaces (slab and counterslab) of two fossils of a chicken-size dinosaur, called Compsognathus (komp-sog-NAY-thus). #Bird feathers were then imprinted into the wet cement.
We must rethink what we think we know: #Mammal or #Reptile? Researchers think the #Triceratops had forelimbs with a more mammal-like posture resembling that shown in the top images, versus the more reptile-like forelimb posture shown below.
The three-horned animal Triceratops may have had a more upright, athletic posture than thought, new anatomical evidence suggests.
Researchers say Triceratops' forelimbs may have resembled those of a large mammal, kept closer to its body than the forelimbs of reptiles and amphibians that typically have a lower, more sprawling posture.
Artificial #Satellites, modifying our #weather and jet streams, have been around for more than 20 years. Here is one example of a patent: Weather modification by artificial satellites, Franklin Y. K. Chen, U.S. Patent 5,984,239
#Quasars are an interesting topic to study for #cosmologists, as they do not agree with the #red shift #Doppler effect, namely #Hubble's Law, thus putting the Big #Bang, expanding universe, and #Einstein's laws into question. Quasars were also discovered nearly thirty years after #Hubble invented his law, stating that the #redshift of a #galaxy is correlated with its distance from the #Milky Way, and this Doppler shift indicates that all galaxies are moving further away from us in our expanding #universe. Einsteinian #scientists still refuse to accept any other reasons apart from distance to explain this red shift in galaxies, even after quasar anomalies put distance into question. Cosmologists who wouldn't dare to question Einstein's dogmatic mainstream theories of #gravitation had to invent #dark #matter, #black holes, and dark #energy to account for all of the missing mass in our universe. Einstein's theories simply do not work in the construction of a galaxy, therefore cosmologists fill in his blanks with their imaginary fantasies of dark matter and dark energy.
Today I Found Out everything I thought I knew about #Velociraptors was a #lie. Now to be fair, everything I “knew” about Velociraptors came from the #Jurassic Park movies and so I shouldn’t really be surprised it was all wrong. So if, like me, you thought that Velociraptors were slightly bigger than a #human; #reptilian looking; hunted in packs; were found in what is now the United #States; and were ridiculously intelligent. Well, literally none of that is true.
The evidence that #dinosaurs lived with man in recent #history is staggering and overwhelming due to the countless #artifacts, #drawings, carvings, statues, mosaics and depictions throughout history of Brachiosaurus, #Stegosaurus, Plesiosaur, Pterodactyl, #Triceratops, #T-rex and more. If #man didn't live with these #creatures, how did artists throughout #ancient history and in #cultures all over the world happen to re-create these #beasts, thousands of years ago, to “coincidentally” look identical to what we see in the dinosaur books and museums today? Some may say “well, they must have seen #dinosaur #skeletons back then too”. Not so. Here's why.
Scientists from many disciplines have long debated the connection between #dinosaurs and birds. Did #birds descend from dinosaurs, or are modern birds actually living dinosaurs?
The largest #Tyrannosaurus rex ever found is now on display at the Field #Museum in #Chicago. Modern birds lack the long tail and #teeth of dinosaurs, but many features of these fearsome #prehistoric #creatures are amazingly bird like. Let's take a look at some of the similarities between a T. rex and a modern bird.
And He it is Who sends forth the #winds bearing #good #news before His #mercy, until, when they bring up a laden #cloud, We drive it to a #dead #land. Then We send down #water on it, then bring forth with it #fruits of all kinds; likewise shall We bring forth the dead that you may be #mindful [#Quran, 7:57]
There is a revolution just beginning in astronomy / cosmology that will rival the one set off by #Copernicus and #Galileo. This revolution is based on the growing realization that the #cosmos is highly electrical in #nature. It is becoming clear that 99% of the universe is made up not of "invisible #matter", but rather, of matter in the #plasma state. Electrodynamic forces in #electric plasmas are much stronger than the #gravitational force.
Mainstream #astrophysicists are continually “surprised” by new data sent back by #space probes and orbiting #telescopes. That ought to be a clue that something is wrong. New information always sends theoretical astrophysicists "back to the drawing board". In light of this, it is curious that they have such "cock-sure" attitudes about the infallibility of their present models. Those models seem to require major "patching up" every time a new space probe sends back data.
Did Johannes #Kepler (the Heliocentrist) Murder Tycho #Brahe, known for his #geocentric views?
After Brahe's death, Kepler obtained his data and findings, and changed his orbital system to a pure heliocentric one. Kepler had to create new laws of planetary motion in order to satisfy the apparent observations of planets' orbits, and to satisfy the heliocentric model.
As an #astronomer, Tycho worked to combine what he saw as the geometrical benefits of the #Copernican system with the benefits of the #Ptolemaic system into his own model of the #universe, the #Tychonic system. Furthermore, he was the last of the major naked eye astronomers, working without telescopes for his observations.
Note the similarities :
Top left: Ptolemy's orbital system, which uses epicycles, with #earth at the centre. Top right: #Fibonacci sequence in in a #flower. Bottom left: The orbital path of #Venus. Bottom right: #Ring #nebula
Ptolemy's #geocentric model of our orbital system used #epicycles, which helps explains retrograde motion of #Mars, and phase / size changes of #Venus. #Copernicus used many of #Ptolemy's concepts in his simplified #heliocentric model, without epicycles. He had also perfect circles for the orbits that circled the sun. When #scientific authorities began to realize that Copernicus' model did not work, John #Kepler later came along and made the orbits #elliptical, in order to support the heliocentric model. His data was fabricated, according to New York Times. With the new Kepler orbits, Isaac #Newton then introduces his gravitational laws to further support the heliocentric theory.

Is it a coincidence that all these #planetary nebulae are facing directly towards #earth? Perhaps we are being shown Ptolemy's #orbital system in action. #Ptolemy (top left) suggested that earth was at centre, with the #sun and other bodies orbiting around in #epicycles. When one compares his model to these planetary nebulae, we note some striking similarities in the orbital systems. Ptolemy's model was considered too complex by #Copernicus and did not go well with the sun-worshipping occult #priests and authorities of that time. However, we must ask ourselves: do we live in a milky way "galaxy", the one so clearly shown in photographs taken millions of light years away? How would such an image outside of our #galaxy be photographed ? Is a #nebula really what we think it is, considering that we have not seen a full lifespan?
#Copernicus was the one who proposed #Heliocentrism, so why is everyone pointing at #Galileo? Authorities are quick to say that the #church wanted to persecute Galileo, but how true does this statement hold? If that was the case, why did the #Pope present a gift of honour to the one who brought to him Copernicus' theory, stating that the #earth revolves around the #sun, and not vice-versa. More importantly, we must take note of who influenced Copernicus, who had only gone to school to obtain a degree in #canon law (#religious law). Could there be a significant connection between sun #worship and why this theory was heralded as ultimate truth? When one studies #ancient civilizations and occult practices, we learn that High #Priests during the time of #Jesus worshipped the sun, as did Egyptian elites. #Paul (Saul) was also largely influenced by the Mithras #religion, and hence today we are left with the #solar calendar and #Sunday for worship, as was decided by elites at the Council of #Nicaea. Symbols of sun worship can also be found today, littered throughout the media and #music industry. So what is our real reason to accept the sun as centre? Is it simply a matter of #science and the creation of physical laws that are made appealing to the heliocentric theory? Could it be a delusion created by authorities, who wish to deceive the masses, keeping the #secrets of our #universe hidden, while keeping man enslaved to labour for the #dollar? Perhaps time will tell...
Look where these low pressure zones are "popping up" to control and steer this #weather system. Remember that #NEXRAD sites can act as mini #HAARP devices, capable of creating low pressure zones in the #atmosphere. Both are assisted by electromagnetic means. This may also be assisted by emissions from artificial satellites mentioned in weather patents.
Feb 5/14 - As #Canada moves into its third day (or more) of complete #cloud cover, the altered #jet stream is bringing frigid #arctic #cold into the #Pacific, #Prairies, and elsewhere. Is the #U.S. trying to "cool" itself down? Do you recall that unusual "arctic blast" that hit places as far south as #California, frost-damaging #orchards, and even brought #snow into #Texas two months ago? Perhaps #geoengineering methods are still being fine-tuned, but how will #Mother #Nature respond ?
